Stanfield teacher arrested for sexual misconduct with a minor (Photo: Guilty)
Maricopa.com ^ | 7/1/10 | Staff

Posted on 07/02/2010 11:58:26 AM PDT by Mikey_1962

On Wednesday at 10:40 p.m. law enforcement officers from several agencies were working a detail in the area of Highway 84 and White and Parker Road in Stanfield. A white SUV pulled off of the roadway near where officers from the Gila River Police Department were working.

Using night vision goggles from a distance, the officers observed two individuals in the vehicle appearing to have consensual sexual intercourse. Prior to the officers making contact, the male and female got out of the vehicle and began to argue.

The officers later learned that the male subject was only 14 years old, and the female was identified as 26-year-old Andrea Martinez, a schoolteacher with the Stanfield Elementary School District and a former teacher of the victim.

Both individuals admitted to having sexual intercourse with each other prior to being contacted by officers. Additionally, the victim reported that he had sexual intercourse last month with Ms. Martinez.

Martinez was arrested by Pinal County sheriff's detectives and will be booked this afternoon into the Pinal County Adult Detention Facility.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, "It is very upsetting that an adult would take advantage of a child, especially when the adult is placed in a position of trust such as Ms. Martinez. I am very thankful that PCSO detectives and the officers from the Gila River Police Department worked quickly together to put Ms. Martinez behind bars."

The Stanfield Elementary School District was notified of the arrest and is cooperating fully with the investigation.

Can we stop playing the guilty/innocent game based upon the attractiveness of the accused...at least when we’re talking about sexual assault on children??

If they committed such a crime, their looks are irrelevant and they deserve the harshest punishment allowable.

Let's hope these officers were getting in some practice for border duty.

oh come on. judging whether or not there was real “abuse” should take into account attractiveness. a hot teacher that any adolescent male would give his eye teeth to schtupp is probably not actually abusing him.

however no matter what they look like, they obviously have something wrong upstairs.

Makes you wonder, doesn’t it. Should we be more worried about what two people are doing in the dark, or two cops doggedly determined to find out what that might be?

Is it just me, or is the link the funniest thing I will see today?

At the link with the story and the mug shot of the teacher who had sex with her student, there is an animated advertisement below.

It starts with jungle leaves which open to show an astonished kid with binoculars. Then come the words:
“An approach so different, it will change the way you think about child care.”
Then cuts to a female teacher and a student. It ends up with the name “Childrens Learning Adventure”

I laughed. If I were then I would contact Maricopa.com and ask for my ad money back.

No, because apparently at least a segment of the male population never gets past the age of 14. I personally would like to see photos of the guys who play that game. That might be honestly enlightening. :)

The thing that bothers me about these the most is that parents have the right to expect teachers to protect their kids, not engage in this sort of behavior with them. I was a teacher and I felt that I was to be a role model. Not their friend, not their sexual partner, etc. This is clearly a person in a position of authority abusing that authority, regardless of the sex of either party. It’s why a boss should not solicit sex from an employee (altho it happens).

You are misinformed and perpetuating a stereotype that it is ok for a woman to sexualize a young boy and interfere with his custody by his parents before he has chosen his educational path or fully formed his moral conduct. It is a theft of innocence for the boy and his entire family, as well as from his future wife and children, the same as for a girl.

Male Victims of Sexual Abuse
"Male victims of sexual abuse constitute an extremely under-identified, under-served and frequently misunderstood population. Prevalence rates for males ranged from 3% - 29% (as cited in Barnett et al., 1997, p. 761). Though sexual abuse is under-reported by both males and females, males are in a unique position. They are far less likely to disclose sexual abuse due to...."

That is a great post. First of all thank you for teaching. As much as people bash the profession on this site, there are many great teachers who do great work and try to instill values. Second it is bazaar to me that teachers are getting themselves into this type of behavior. Men used to be the ones that went for the young teen girls probably to fulfill some lost childhood or something. But women usually go for older men or at least that is how it used to be...more father figure types. What is it they are looking to for 14 year old boys? It does not make sense.

I really don’t understand the attraction to these young boys myself, of course, I didn’t start teaching until I was in my forties, so I had kids older than the ones I was teaching, so it would have had a BIG ick factor to me anyway.
I think a LOT of it is fairly young women who can’t let go of their own teen years, and this tendency for kids not to grow up, an overly sexualized society (hey, even conservative FReepers, take a look at these threads) a desire to be friends with the kids, etc.
Or maybe something else I’m missing. I know there were teachers who were what I would have called overly friendly with their students, altho only none of them I suspected of having a sexual relationship with students. I thought it was bad enough for the ones who acted like the kids friends because I think there should be that line of authority. My students liked me, I was fairly popular. But if you are their friend, things go the heck when you give them a bad grade or do something else they deem *unfriendly*. BTW many of my former students are now my *friends* on Facebook, which is fine. They are now adults with young families and it’s fun to watch them all grown up.

Ya know, you are spot on. Thinking back on my teachers, my 5th grade teacher was just like you. She was the best ever.

Not only was she a good teacher, she was also a good protector. She watched out for us kids. Gosh, that was more that 50 years ago.

Sadly, I think the libs have taken control of our school systems and as a result, push their PC ideology and the ‘hate-America’ theme.....

Just my thoughts.

Oh yeah, please don't take offense, I mean, after all, I am a male: NOT guilty.

"If they committed such a crime, their looks are irrelevant and they deserve the harshest punishment allowable."

The point is, the looks are very relevant...like it or not. I know you've been around here a while, but are probably not aware that the "guilty - not guilty" commentary on these threads really began by those of us in the male demographic who saw major prison sentences doled out to males caught in such compromising positions while females appeared to be given veritable slaps on the wrist for identical crimes.

The commentary is a direct indictment of the legal system in which we are all supposed to be equal under the law, but a 35 year old male having sex with a 16 year old female will receive nowhere near equal treatment as a 35 year old female who has sex with a 16 year old male. There's a tremendous disparity there, and those of us who render our verdicts on these cases are merely indulging in a bit of satire. It is in that sense, political speech.

Thats not all that far from where the Sheriff’s Deputy was shot by smugglers recently(about 20 miles west). Well known smuggling corridor, so the police are pretty well outfitted as far as high speed gear is concerned.

You know, since you continue to go on and on, obviously someone who always must have the last word, I need to go back and correct your obvious misunderstanding.

I don’t know what you took as an offer to “hook up” but there was certainly not one.

If you go back and reread your post #10, your obvious reference to *hitting that* and the rest of the text in the picture certainly suggested a certain prowess on your part. I suggested that it seemed you thought quite a lot of yourself and I don’t see why we should take that at face value. Even funnier is the fact that you then tried to pretend that the phrase I’d hit that doesn’t mean what we all know it means. I suppose you take us all as dolts. Are you a Democrat?

The fact that you got a little irritated by my post, well... I’ll just let it go.

I suspect real statistics are difficult to come by. They might be kept state by state, but it’s probably apples and oranges, as states probably have different standards on what is abuse, etc. I’m not trying to be slippery, but I bet that is the case.

No "irritation" here, I assure you. (Good-natured giggling, certainly... but: that's not even remotely the same thing, really.)

Seriously, though: step away from the keyboard for ten, maybe fifteen minutes. Take a walk around the block, if the weather's nice wherever you happen to be. Breathe into a brown paper bag, if absolutely necessary. Whatever it takes: UNCLENCH. ;)
